You know that I have a young daughter, and therefore, I am all about childhood memories.  To me, childhood ought to be simple and sweet.  It’s with that sentiment in mind, I designed the following quilts, girl and boy versions. All you need for these quilts are some precuts 2 1/2″ strips and fat quarters!

Today, I have had a bit of fun over at Instagram with a very important question.  I thought I would do it here too as our #14 installment of our THIS or THAT question. [If you are on Instagram and want to search for me, my handle is ivory_spring — VERY original, eh?!]  Ready – MILK or DARK Chocolate Bunny for you?!

  1. Milk chocolate for me! I’m one of the few women I know who don’t like dark chocolate. I clicked through to a few of the blogs listed here – so interesting how a quilt design can take on different looks with different fabrics.

  2. Milk chocolate for sure! Or worse….white chocolate….but no dark for me. I have 3 grown daughters—2 of which adore dark chocolate. I’ve just never learned to like it and it’s probably too late now at my age. I think it’s too healthy for me. lol…. I thought Bea did a great job re-creating your quilt….I love it in reds and blacks. Blessings and a big quilty hug…kathy in WV
